Is it time to truly understand unconditional love? Do you need support in leading your pack at home or work? Trying to decide whether to bark or actually bite? Dog, as a Spirit, Totem, and Power Animal, can help! Dog teaches the importance of loyalty and one’s position within a group. Delve deeply in Dog symbolism and meaning to find out how this Animal Spirit Guide can support, guide, and motivate you.
An excellent way of honoring the Animal Spirits that enter your life is by learning more about them. When a Dog chooses to act as a spiritual guide or an aid, you can trust in it for protection, alertness, bravery, devotion, and constancy. This symbolic value for Dog isn’t surprising. This creature has barked at the heels of humankind for so long that no one knows for sure when they were first domesticated. Many people believe that Dogs have souls and will reunite with their human counterparts in the afterlife. In other words, all Dogs do indeed go to heaven!
The ancient Egyptians used Dog symbolism regularly. The city of Cynopolis translates as “Dog”. In this region, it was actually a law that the people of the city care for all Dogs diligently. They also worshipped the Dog Star (Sirius) because its position in the sky predicted the flooding of the Nile. This marked the New Year. This predictability of the Dog spirit equated to faithfulness and also gives Dog an additional metaphysical relationship with prognostication.
It seems everywhere you looked in the ancient world, and indeed modern times, Dog spirit is there with more bark than bite. Leaders in Babylon and Assyria both have numerous Dogs mentioned in their chronicles, along with the concept that Dogs have psychic vision and see ghosts or imperceptible dangers. They use this mystical ability to protect their owners not only in this life but the next.
This ability to see-true may be why the Greeks choose a three-headed Dog image (Cerberus) as the guardian of the dead. In this position, the Dog spirit again acts as a guide and even becomes an obedient intermediary for human souls. This protective element parallels with the Norse Garmr, a Dog that stands at the gates of the underworld. It is said that Garmr will only howl if the end of the world is nigh. In this way, we see the Dog animal spirit again as a visionary and prognosticator.
Time and time again mythology portrays the sacred Dog as being brave, powerful and vigilant. The hunter Orion of Greek mythology was always accompanied by his faithful Dog, Sirius. The Goddess Artemis is also depicted with divine hunting Dogs. In South Africa, we see this creature portrayed as an Ancestor spirit that gives humankind fire, and in Japan, the images of Dogs often stand guard at temple doors.
With all this in mind, it’s not surprising when a Dog spirit guide chooses to bless your life. They are exactly where they wish to be, close to a human heart who will cherish them. As a side note, an actual living Dog can be a Divine messenger and helpmate too. Some people believe that Angels can turn themselves into Dogs for the purpose of safeguarding a person or family and offering aid in times of trouble.
